You are leaving our website and we have no influence whatsoever on the data and data processing operations that are then collected, nor are we aware of the full scope of the data collection, the purposes and the storage periods.

Use of Google AdWords
Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement placed by Google, Google Adwords will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after a maximum of 180 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. If you do not want to do this, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this - for example via a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or set your browser so that cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com” are blocked.
Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all of your cookies in your browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

YouTube saves your data as a usage profile and uses it for advertising, market research and / or needs-based design of its website.

You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, although you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

This is used in particular to differentiate whether an online form was filled out by a person or improperly through machine and automated processing. (The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.f GDPR)
Your rights, objection or revocation against the processing of your data
If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this at any time. Such a revocation affects the permissibility of the processing of your personal data after you have expressed it to us in writing.
If we base the processing of your personal data on the balancing of interests, you can object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is in particular not required to fulfill a contract (e.g. membership) with you, which we describe in the following description of the functions. When exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust the data processing or point out to you our compelling reasons worthy of protection, on the basis of which we will continue the processing.
If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or that your data protection claims have been violated in any other way, you can complain to the supervisory authority. In Austria this is the data protection authority.
